This is us, we book our trips, and if Free dining comes, great, we just saved $1000. If NOT, still going on vacation, still staying at the resort we want to, still doing the dining plan. I budget for the cost of the trip INCLUDING dining, and if I save the $1000 because of FD, it just goes back into the bank towards the cost of the next Disney Trip. So basically, either way I win!

I know it isn't the same as the free dining promotion, (which, of course, we all are waiting for with all fingers and toes crossed,) but the offer given for Feb. allowed us to get about a $500 discount for room, tix and DP, and we only had to buy 1 day park tix for each person. Of course, we added days when we got there, because not everyone in our party was needing the same amount of days.

So, worse case scenario and they offer a similar promotion, you can get it with a minimum 1 day park ticket.

Yes, the dates on the Visa offer were through 8/14/13 and will be released to the public on April 2. I wouldn't expect any other offers to be announced until May at this point.

I really hope FD becomes available! it's pretty much the only way my dad will even consider going!! The spring offer of 30% off ends on March 31st. So maybe the next special offer will come out in early April??

How does Deluxe dining factor in?

We are goin in the fall and have booked the Deluxe Dining Plan. If there were to be a free dining plan deal when we are going how does that work? Do we just have to pay the difference between the Deluxe and the free Magic Your way plan?

UK Free Dining 2013
For any Brits looking to book a WDW holiday via the Disney website for 2013 - here is the free dining offer and dates. There will be black out dates so you'll have to put your choice of dates in the search engine to check these. You need to also book your tickets as part of your package to qualify for free dining.

No free dining at values resorts. Quick service plan at moderate resorts. Regular dining plan at deluxe resorts and also Saratoga Springs and Old Key West which are available with some great room rates currently. A one bed at one of these DVC's is running at a similar price to the Yacht/Beach Club, a studio is less.

For selected arrivals between 1 Jan - 19 March and 7 Apr - 8 Dec 2013 inclusive.

Just a note to everyone that the UK deals don't always reflect the US ones. So be careful when using that as a guide for what we may get. Last year had a UK deal that was the same as what you quoted (none for value, QS for mod) for dates all through 2012 and the US free dining was drastically different.

Here's the UK deal for 2012:

Eligible 2012 dates include:
1 Jan-26 Feb
1 May-17 Jun
1 Aug-18 Nov 2012

Just book a WDW hotel and park tickets for at least 5 nights during the eligible dates, then the entire party will dine for free during your holiday. Guests staying at a Disney moderate resort will enjoy the free Quick Servicing Dining Plan. Reserving a deluxe hotel or villa will entitle your family to the free Disney Dining Plan (also known as the standard plan).

Yes, you would just be required to pay the difference. We've done this twice and if the Deluxe plan fits your dining style you can't beat it.
